The Arts Council of Placer County (California) sponsors a festival centered
on agriculture and art - AGROart.

Children, adults, and culinary professionals, and in individual or team
categories are invited to create sculptures using Placer County agriculture.
It began as a part of the local Mountain Mandarin Festival, and was so
popular - it became its own festival last year. This year's festival was
last weekend - and was highly popular with both the participating artists
and the festival-goers. It's amazing what someone can do with an eggplant,
a cucumber and some parsley!
